Gardening Without Borders

If you want to:

A. spend more time in the sun

B. learn more about urban agriculture

C. have more fun; or

D. all of the above

…then you should join us this summer at The World In A Garden! Why be a part of TWIAG? We offer rewarding experiences for people from all walks of life so that we can build community, grow multicultural awareness, and educate Vancouverites to make healthy & environmentally sound decisions. We believe that it is your small and valuable decisions that will make life in Vancouver & the world more sustainable!

Summer has brought lots of exciting events (new and returning) and volunteer opportunities to our garden, and we’d like to share some of those with you…

  • Passport to Permaculture: A Kids Camp (NEW)

Following the ethics of permaculture- care of the earth, care of all people and fair share- kids will explore the different aspects of urban agriculture- nutrition, local food, biodiversity and ethical business. Participants receive stamps in their “Passport to Permaculture” as they complete activities representing the 12 principles of permaculture. The camp features knowledgeable & engaging guest speakers, arts & crafts, hands-on activities, a field trip to Rocky Mountain Flatbread Company and a camper-run garden gate sale! Click on the “workshops & camps” tab for more information.

  • Seed to Table Workshop Series

We are very excited about our workshop series this summer! It includes interesting topics & knowledgeable guest speakers from our area who are committed to growing local, minimizing footprints and building a more sustainable community.

Coming up: Arts & Seed Starts (A Kids Workshop) & Backyard Chickensboth on JULY 20– double the fun!

  • Markets

This summer, TWIAG is happy to be part of three wonderful markets: Oak St. Farmer’s Market & Westside Pocket Market & Southlands Market. Check them out on our “where to find us” page. And remember to buy local 🙂

  • Native Edible Garden

In honor of First Nations culture and heritage, we are planting a native edible garden along the boulevard south of our garden. The garden will be blessed by Squamish Nation Minister, Eugene Harry, and planted with the help of Linaea Nurseries and the community that has supported us since our beginnings.
